Club Rules

The 10 Rules of UBC

1 – Treat every item of equipment within the boat club as if it was your personal property.

2 – Treat every member of the Club with respect and courtesy.

3 – The Executive of the Club will publish a boat and oar allocation list – no one is to use boats and oars other than in accordance with that allocation.

4 – Before going on the water please ensure the Log Book has been filled out, and note your return on completing the row. This is a safety requirement.

5 – Be quick when using the pontoon or launching from the steps, and remember incoming rowers have the right of way, and always remember rule No.2.

6 – No boats, the property of the Union Boat Club, are to be rowed downstream of the Cobham Bridge on the Whanganui River.

7 – All boats and oars are to be washed before being returned to their racks.

8 – All boats and oars are to be returned to the same rack as they were removed from.

9 – If anything breaks, either fix it, or tell someone who can fix it – don’t leave it for the next person to discover when they get on the water.

10 – Always try your hardest to act in a way that will make your family, friends and club proud.


UBC Gym Rules

1 – Treat every item of equipment within the boat club as if it was your personal property.

2 – Treat every member of the Club with respect and courtesy.

3 – Remember not everyone is as strong as you – please unload the heavy weights off the bar when you finish and return them to the appropriate place!

4 – Please spray and wipe down all equipment you use when you finish – we don’t want to share your sweat. Please use a sweat towel if possible.

5 – Please leave the Gym as you would like to find it next time you arrive – and remember to lock all windows and doors.

PLEASE BE AWARE OF YOUR OWN SAFETY AND THAT OF OTHERS WHEN USING THE GYM EQUIPMENT. IF YOU ARE PLANNING A HEAVY WEIGHTS SESSION PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE APPROPRIATE SUPERVISION IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT/EMERGENCY.

THE CLUB DOES NOT CONDONE THE USE OF HEAVY WEIGHTS WHEN COMPLETING WORKOUTS ALONE.

Athletes

All athletes/rowers must be able to swim 50m in light clothes unassisted.
If you cannot swim – NO ROW.

Ensure you personally are fit and healthy enough to take to the water.

Your safety in the first instance is your own responsibility.
